Modeling Pediatric Brain Trauma: Piglet Model of Controlled Cortical Impact.

Abstract

The brain has different responses to traumatic injury as a function of its developmental stage. As a model of injury to the immature brain, the piglet shares numerous similarities in regards to morphology and neurodevelopmental sequence compared to humans. This chapter describes a piglet scaled focal contusion model of traumatic brain injury that accounts… (More)
